All-America Selections (AAS), North America’s most well-known and respected non-profit plant trialing organization has five new AAS Winners available for the 2025 gardening season.

Brokers, growers, and retailers will want to add these proven garden performers to their assortments to prepare for the demand coming in 2025. Breeder sales contacts are included below the winner description.

All AAS Winners are trialed throughout North America by professional, independent, volunteer judges who grow new, never-before-sold entries next to comparisons that are considered best-in-class.

  • Dianthus Capitan Magnifica — National Winner
  • Nasturtium Baby Gold — Regional Series Winner
  • Nasturtium Baby Yellow — Regional Series Winner
  • Nasturtium Baby Red — Regional Series Winner

National Winner

Dianthus interspecific Capitán Magnifica AAS Winner

Dianthus interspecific Capitán Magnifica | All-America Selections

A magnificent captain for your garden! It’s smooth sailing with these blooms, whether in your garden or on your patio in containers. AAS judges were very impressed with this new dianthus as it continued blooming and growing even through summer’s heat. One quick shearing after blooming and it bounced back with a profusion of beautiful pink blooms that sport a consistent, light pink edging. New interspecific breeding gives this beauty more heat tolerance than traditional dianthus varieties which also have stems long enough to be used as cut flowers. Bonus, the more flower stems you cut for indoor enjoyment, the more blooms this capitan puts forth.  Upgrade your garden with the award-winning Capitán Magnifica dianthus!

Oh Baby! A new color in the popular Baby series of nasturtiums! If you love Baby Rose, then Baby Gold is a “must-add” for your garden.  The Baby series is known for being a petite-flowered, mounding variety with healthy, dark foliage ideal for containers and small space gardens. AAS’ expert judges praised the uniformly compact plants that produced intense gold-colored flowers that did not fade. Their compact habit means less “flower flopping” with their blooms remaining upright throughout the season. The golden yellow color contrasts beautifully with the dark green foliage. Bonus: both the leaves and flowers are edible!
